Thinking about reframing

Clark Quinn

I found something interesting, and wanted to share, but…I realize this is supposed to be about my learnings about learning. So, I’m framing it as thinking about reframing ;). Seriously, it’s about extant models and opportunities to rethink. So, to begin with, I’ve been somewhat frustrated with the traditional model of capitalism. No, not as a plea for communism or something, but because it doesn’t align with our brains.

Scenario Planning - Formulating Strategy in the Face of High Uncertainty

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

“How can we formulate strategy in the face of uncertainty?,” asks Learning from the Future , a recent Harvard Business Review article by Peter Scoblic , in its opening sentence. Answering this question has never felt more urgent as leaders prepare for the future. “Even before the Covid-19 crisis, rapid technological change, growing economic interdependence, and mounting political instability had conspired to make the future increasingly murky.” Uncertainty was already all-encompassing.

How to get fans inside the NBA’s playoff bubble

Doc Searls

Sell tickets to attend online through Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts, Webex, GoToMeeting, Jitsi or whatever conferencing system can supply working tech to the NBA. Then mic everyone in the paying crowd, project them all on the walls (or sheets hanging from the ceiling), combine their audio, and run it through speakers so players can see and hear the cheering crowds. The playoffs start on July 31.

A little silliness

Clark Quinn

So, this was a little silliness I did in the 99 second presos at the Learning & Development Conference. It was the second one (the other was more aspirational). I’d put it together and then wasn’t sure, but there was time and space. It’s just for fun, nothing serious, along the lines of others I’ve done. FYA (allegro): Hi, I’m Dr. Quinn, Meaningful Man, and have I got solutions for you! We’ve got learning experiences that are certain to be new.

Who will win the epic battle for online meeting hegemony?

Dion Hinchcliffe's Web 2.0 Blog

The pandemic has focused much of the remote worker experience like a laser on the lowly online meeting, where many workers now spend so much of their work day now. Stalwarts like Cisco and HCL are facing intense competition from upstarts like Zoom and Slack as well as industry heavyweights Google and especially Microsoft

How long will radio last?

Doc Searls

These are among the since-demolished towers of the once-mighty WMEX/1510 radio in Boston. That wasn’t exactly the question asked on Quora, but what follows is my answer. If you mean licenses, all of them last as long as they have value to the owners—or that regulators allow them to persist. Note that nearly every broadcast license more than a few decades old has by now had many owners over a long period of time, and more than one call sign as well.

Home is where one’s butt is

Doc Searls

I don’t want to explain why we’re bivouac’d at a friend’s house in San Marino. What matters, for the purpose of this post, is that we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the Covid-19 pandemic. My only complaint is that there’s nothing resembling an office desk or chair here. I’ve coped by collecting my ass and my electronics within an arrangement of mostly antique furniture. That’s what you see in the screenshot above.

COVID-19 has changed just about everything about daily life in the U.S., including how people train and learn in the workplace.
